Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) South Korean carrier SK Telecom (SKM) plans to sell a version of the iPhone 5S supporting the next-gen LTE-Advanced standard, the Korea Times reports. The report comes shortly after Samsung launched a Galaxy S4 variant supporting a basic version of LTE-Advanced. 2) Apple might become the latest U.S. company (previous) to be targeted by U.K. tax authorities: the FT reports Apple, aided by tax-deductible stock option awards, paid no taxes in FY12 on local income of $103.6M. 3) In spite of a deluge of Windows ultrabook launches, NPD estimates the MacBook Air still made up 56% of U.S. thin-and-light laptop sales from January-May.
